Blue Shetland Triangle Shawl

A very, very lovely lady at our church, Pattie Q., was so gracious to me throughout my pregnancy. She gave me a car seat for Andrew, and a Fisher-Price swing that has been a lifesaver! When she gave me these two things in December, I immediately went out and bought yarn to make a shawl for her (what else is new?). I went back and forth on what pattern to use, and never got around to it till two weeks ago. Even then, I changed the pattern at the last minute and switched to the Shetland Triangle Lace Shawl by Evelyn Clark. I've been meaning to knit this pattern for someone else for a while, but I was always daunted by the lace charts and the provisional crochet cast on. Well, it was EASY! So easy I'm a little embarrassed and annoyed with myself that I took so long to make it. And the resulting shawl is absolutely stunning. My friend Irene was kind enough to take the pictures, and I sort of "bullied" my mother-in-law to model it for me. Take a look at the pictures and tell me what you think. I hope Pattie likes it. I think I'll make one for my mother-in-law also. :)

  1. This is beautiful!!! I have been a huge admirer of the lace triangle shawls. I am in the process of my first one it is "Artemis" on "Ravelry". A friend there has been kind enough to hold my hand in this process. I hope one day to be as accomplished as you!

  2. You are so sweet dragonfly! Is that your username on Ravelry? Which Artemis are you working on? They all look very complicated to me. You should try this pattern out. It's quite easy. The pattern is from the book "Wrap Style". I borrowed the book from my local library, but you can also buy the pattern on Ravelry. It's honestly quite easy, so you'll be able to do it easily. Thank you so much for following my blog. Please invite others to do so. :)

A new free pattern: Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf v1

Today I have a new pattern for all my knitters out there. It's a very simple pattern that creates a gorgeous, warm shawl, just in time for the cold weather. I actually finished this last year but only got the chance to write it up and put it up now. Here it is, the "Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf". Thanks to my friend Johanna P. for modeling this at work about a year ago!! The pattern has also been added to Ravelry here.

 Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf

A friend of mine saw a shawl similar to this somewhere and asked me to recreate it. I did my best to imitate the look of the shawl, but I cannot for sure say that it’s the same shawl. I thought I’d share the pattern with anyone who might be interested in a light but warm shawl made by striping thin cotton yarn with bulky single ply wool yarn. Because of the lightness of the bulky wool, this shawl can also be worn as a scarf by wrapping it around your neck. The finished product is classy and elegant for very little wor…

Nurse Appreciation Scarf 2 - For Sheila

Nurse Sheila was my night nurse, and she was extremely patient with me when I struggled to learn how to breastfeed Andrew while he was crying up a storm. She and nurse Della put up with my numerous requests for more and more ice. This scarf is for her.
